also plans to slow spending on medicare. >> i have strengthened medicare, we have added years to the life of medicare. we did it by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies and insurance companies that were not making people healthier. >> by 2014, the law requires everybody to have health insurance, whether they purchase it themselves or through their employers. and insurers can't deny you if you have a pre-existing condition or increase your rate. the law has become a cornerstone of the obama campaign. >> i refuse to eliminate health insurance for millions of americans who are poor, and elderly, or disabled. also those with the most can pay lessor owe. >> reporter: but romney says the affordable care act is not affordable. >> we know that health care is too expensive. obama care doesn't make it less expensive. >> reporter: he wants obama cari gone, including the drug prescriptions for seniors. but he wants to keep pieces of the health care plan. although he doesn't say how it will work. >> we have to make sure that people who have pre-existing conditions are able to get insured. and

are not the only ones making decisions like this. the task force also said that with regard to medicare, we need to do something about the obese and smokers and they also had a proposal which was more complicated than ours for restricting the spending on end of life care. these are difficult, painful decisions but we will have to see -- we will have to face them. sunday up next, the nevada senatorial debate. this race could be a tossup. a new poll shows senator heller leading. this is one hour. >> good evening and welcome to the studios of kmpb in reno. this will be an hourlong debate b, andred by cbs, kmp "the reno cassette journal. here is the format for the debate. each candidate will get a one minute opening statement. the candidate will then be asked a series of questions. the candidates will each get one minute and a half to respond to the same question. the candidates will receive -- who receive the original question will get one minute to rebut. we will also have closing statements. opening statements have been determined by a coin toss. these are our questioners. >> thank you and i woul
seniors about medicare tactics. that has been working really well. so i think obama will bring that up. one thing we will hear is the phrase that romney would end medicare's guarantee, which is a phrase the democrats have liked to use recently. we have raided that half-true for two reasons. one, it is not like it really has a guarantee now. congress can change the medicare benefits any time it wants to. it frequently has. now, romney would change the structure in which people would pay for medicare. it would go from being -- it would turn into the essentially a voucher plan. in that sense, we found some truth and rated it as half- truth. >> thank you, bill. our next prediction from glenn kessler, checker of facts, awarder of pinocchios. what will we see? >> i have two. they both deal with medicare. one thing i always say, the more complicated a subject is, the more susceptible it is stretching the truth. when it is complicated, you can make assertions that a lot of times journalists do not have the time or inclination to check. i do want to say one thing about welfare -- the reason i s

will talk about it. >> it accounts for a huge proportion of total medicare spending. by the way, one reason is the first thing in our article is getting medicare costs under control is the number one priority. it is the most untouchable thing. but that will cause more trouble than any other problem we have got fiscally in the united states. getting medicare costs under control is the number one thing. >> you say we also surcharge smokers and the obese for their medicare coverage. where did that idea come from? >> it came from us. i am the person who put it in the memo. i did not have to fight very hard for it. i ran into this in the washington post, where instead of calling people morbidly obese, i called the mega fatties -- them mega fatties. i was rebuked for being insensitive, which i guess i am. this is another thing where everyone knows it to be true and some has to pay for it. i am not saying you should bankrupt people if they are too heavy. but there should be penalties. i am not really a democrat, but a democrat compared to him. you have to be responsible to some extent for your per

any way you slice it. seniors get skittish when it comes to medicare. in 2008 barack obama took florida, the majority of seniors voted for john mccain because they were hesitant how the health care reform would take place. talking about ryan and medicare and seniors, it comes down to florida. >> florida, florida, florida, david. she is right about one thing. if you look at the poll, the one area where you see consistent movement poll after poll after poll toward barack obama has been with senior citizens. you know as well as i do, they are a consistent voting block. they go to the polls in larger percentages. has the obama administration been successful at branding the medicare plan of the republicans as voucher care and are senior citizens moving away because they're afraid of the medicare changes? >> the ryan budget plan existed in terms of the 2010 election when republicans won 65 plus seniors by 21 points. part of the dynamic that exists here is, in fact, seniors are really unhappy with president obama's health care plan. what you see is this significant concern handling med
reform, today our parents and grandparents on medicare are paying hundreds less for their prescription drugs. our young people can stay on their parents' insurance until they're 26 years old. [applause] insurance companies now have to cover basic preventive care. things like droon interception, cancer screening. they won't be able to discriminate against you because you have a preexisting condition like diabetes or asthma, and if you get a serious illness -- let's say breast cancer -- and you need expensive treatment. they can no longer tell you sorry, you hit your lifetime limit and we're not covering a penny more. that is illegal because of health reform. and as eli mentioned, when it comes to giving our young people the education they deserve -- see, barack knows that like me and like so many of you he never, never couch attended college without financial aid. never. in fact, as i shared in my speech in charlotte, when we were first married, our combined student loan bills were higher than our mortgage. when it comes to student debt, barack and i, we've been there. this is not a hyp
